Are you looking to raise $250,000 to $500,000 in equity capital? Have you approached Angel investors and Venture Capitalists without success? If you want to take control of your destiny, you owe it to yourself to learn about “Believer Capital”. Believer Capital is a source of early-stage money that can be tapped by any entrepreneur with a big idea and the discipline and ability to sell that idea to individual investors. However, Believer Capital has its own rules and regulations, its do’s and don’ts, and its proven techniques for convincing investors to write a check.

The RQ Group and Holland & Hart’s Emerging Business Practice have joined forces to launch an exciting new program to help entrepreneurs raise Believer Capital. Dr. Douglas Collier, Principal of The RQ Group, will be the guest speaker at the April 19, 2004 session of Start-up Junkie Underground where he will introduce you to Believer Capital. Discover the many advantages of Believer Capital over other sources of early-stage equity capital:

-The entrepreneur is in control of all aspects of a Believer Capital financing … the amount of money you raise, the timing, the company’s valuation, and more.

-Entrepreneurs typically have a stronger likelihood of raising money from Believer Investors than from any other type of early-stage investor.

-Completing a successful Believer Capital financing typically takes less time than other sources of early-stage capital.

-The entrepreneur can begin spending Believer Capital even before the financing is complete.

-Since there are no negotiations involved in a Believer Capital financing, you and your potential investors can focus on why they should invest, rather than on who gets how much and when.

-Learn the lessons Dr. Collier used to raise more than $10 Million of Believer Capital for his own entrepreneurial company. Find out about the new Believer Capital Financing Program and see if it is a fit for you.
